New DIVIN loudspeaker

We are happy to announce, that we will soon unveil our brand new loudspeaker line.
This new loudspeaker line will be an addition to our existing Epoque loudspeaker line and will be more conventional on the first sight. But we of course massively used and applied our bending wave knowledge and technologies in order to bring the sound quality to perfection. We will firstly unveil our top model out of this new loudspeaker line with the name DIVIN.
As a world premier the DIVIN will be soon unveiled on the 5th Audioexotics Super HiEnd show in Hong Kong from 8th till 9th July 2017.

Fidelity report of the 2017 Munich HIGH END show

The world wide renown “fidelity magazine” wrote a nice statement in their final Munich High End 2017 report:
Aber auch im klassischen Zwei-Kanal-Stereobereich gab es einiges zu bestaunen, was die Grenzen des Machbaren neu auslotete. Bei Göbel Audio beispielsweise spielten zwei übermannsgroße Säulen plus zwei massive Subwoofer – bestückt mit jeweils acht Chassis – an Elektronik von CH Precision. Das mag zunächst einmal den Eindruck von „sehr laut“ und „ultramassiv“ erwecken, doch das Gegenteil war klanglich der Fall. Ein Klang mit schwer zu beschreibender, geradezu unendlicher Leichtigkeit und Selbstverständlichkeit erfüllte den Raum. Und das nicht nur in bestimmten Frequenzbereichen, sondern über das ganze Audiospektrum hinweg. Göbel Audio dürfte damit, was Zwei-Kanal-Stereo betrifft, ein absoluter Maßstab für sehr viele andere Hersteller sein, die sich am obersten Ende einer virtuellen Klangskala tummeln.
Many thanks Ingo Schulz for this great report.

Hifi Statement review of our Lacorde Statement Ethernet,
Lacorde Stament USB and Lacorde Statement Digital XLR cables

Dirk Sommer, the chief reviewer and editor of the audiophile magazin “Hifi Statement”, reviewed our new Lacorde Statement Ethernet, Lacorde Statement USB and Lacorde Statement Digital XLR cables.

His judgement is absolutely clear:
Sadly, I really don’t know how Oliver Göbel manages to do this, but I, as well as my visitors and my colleagues, clearly could hear it: Up to this point, any of the Lacorde Statement cables have definitely left my previous favorites behind by a wide margin! It is unbelievable how much more sonic pleasure you can get out of this single meter of cable within a high-resolution chain!

Another “Best Sound of Show” at the Warsaw Audio show 2016

For our presentation on the Warsaw Audio show 2016 we additionally won another “Best Sound of Show” award from the worldwide renown German loudspeakers magazine “Fidelity”. Many thanks for this award, we really appreciate it.

Here is what they wrote in their statement:
1. Göbel High End with electronics from CH Precision.
Göbel High End was one of the rooms that you enter and you are immediately able to summarize: Yes, it has to be exactly like this! That's really, really good: no unnatural sharpness, a tremendous perceiving of the individual sound nuances, an incredible naturalness, plasticity and spatiality - acoustically the technology disappears completely. What remains is pure music and nothing but pure music. For us that is the very highest level!

“Best Sound of Show” at the 2016 Munich HIGH END show

After his visit in our room at the 2016 Munich HIGH END show, Mujtaba from Moiz Audio awarded our system, which consists out of a pair of Epoque Reference loudspeakers together with two of our new active compact subwoofers Epoque Baforce Petite for “Best Sound of Show”.

Best Sound of Show 2016

New active versions of our Epoque Baforce and Epoque Baforce Petite

Our new active versions of the Epoque Baforce and Epoque Baforce Petite will result in an unbelivable realistic bass reproduction, which you have never experienced before.

In the now also available “no compromise” active versions of our subwoofers Epoque Baforce and Epoque Baforce Petite, each bass driver has it’s own 250 Watt/sin. amplifier and is directly coupled to it. That means 16 times 250 Watt/sin. = 4.000 Watt/sin. in total for the Epoque Baforce. And 8 times 250 Watt/sin. = 2.000 Watt/sin. in total for the Epoque Baforce Petite.

Hereby we reach a stunning high damping factor and get the best possible control over each bass driver. Additionally, we hereby also avoid influences through back EMI from the outset.

The massively oversized power supply can shortly deliver 4 times higher peak current as the amplifiers will need at maximum level. Always controlled by a mirco controller to permanently have monitored secured conditions.

Everything mounted in the loudspeaker foot, which is milled out of a full block of a specific aluminum alloy in order to get the perfect control over EMI, crosstalk, heat dispersion and resonance patterns.

New companct subwoofer Epoque Baforce Petite

We are happy to anounce that we finally extent our subwoofer range with a smaller, more compact subwoofer Epoque Baforce Petite.

Instead of the 16 pcs. special developed ultra lossless 9 inch subbass drivers of the Epoque Baforce, we are using 8 pcs. of exactly the same ultra lossless subbass drivers in the Epoque Baforce Petite.

Also, we are of course using exactly all the same proprietary technologies, like our stunning composite housing material, the impulse compensation and the multible bass array, wherein every subbass driver has it’s own closed chamber. Only everything in a more compact size.

online publication “Stereotimes” and one of his major reviewers Moreno Mitchell,
awarded our Lacorde Statement cable series the highly respected titels “Most
Wanted Component 2015 Award” and the “Publishers Choice Award”.

Their conclusion:
“2015 has been a banner year for me as far as audio equipment is concerned.
Upgrading all my audio cables with the Gobel Lacorde Statement series has taken

A new review about our Lacorde Statement cable series

Moreno Mitchell from the audiophile magazine Stereotimes published a new review
about our complete benchmark loudspeaker cable series Lacorde Statement.

A few of his conclusions:
- For the first time, I get the sense that I can tap into the very soul and essence of
  the musician.
- The Göbel Lacorde Statement provided an upgrade to my system that usually
  comes by way of a new loudspeaker, amplifier/preamp - never a mere cable.
- The Göbel Lacorde Statement cables infused my system with such musical vitality
  and potency that I found myself hyper-ventilating on occasion, leading me to dis-
  cover, these Göbel Lacorde cables can produce a level of excitement that goes
  beyond just emotional.
- For the first time in my audio travels has a cable taken hold of my system with
  such conviction and grace.

Stereotimes review of our Epoque Reference and Epoque Baforce

Clement Perry the internationally renown chief editor of the American audiophile
magazine “Stereotimes” reviewed our Epoque Reference loudspeakers together
with our Epoque Baforce subwoofer and visited our premises during the Munich
High End show 2015.

Just a few of his conclusions:
    - “I have never heard a planar, electrostat or anything of its ilk perform to such
      high standards especially when it comes to melding its ultra-natural midrange
      and high-frequencies with its low-end.”
    - “Covering the frequencies between 30kHz - 170Hz essentially makes this
      Bending Wave driver a marvel of science. Listening to it perform this marvel
      was even more impressive than its specs.”
    - “In fact, I would have to say outside of the Epoque Reference's outstanding
      midrange it was its bass power, control and performance that stood out almost
      as much.”
    - “The clarity, speed and harmonic intonation of the bass going further up the
      frequency ladder was just as impressive as the lowest bass notes.”
    - “A speaker, dare I say, that I would enjoy owning and growing old with.”

Matej Isak the chief reviewer and editor of the audiophile magazine “Mono&Stereo”
reviewed our complete benchmark cable series Lacorde Statement.
His judgement is absolutely clear:
    - “They were among the best; well actually the best cables I’ve pleasure to
      hear in my reference system in the terms of universal liquidity happening not
      only in the mid frequencies, but subordinately in the high and lower range.
      Yet, the radiant power and the “magic” of the mids were so captivating, that
      on the moments I’ve completely forgot about the designated labelling. One
      could say everything was harmonically correct and RIGHT!”

“(...) There is something special about the Göbel speakers, likely due to it’s
unusual wideband driver and the crossover’s inherent lack of intrusion on the musical
signal. Digital sounded as resolved and easygoing as great analog, the highs
remaining pure, the lows resolving to the very depths of the recording -
impressive stuff in a less-than-ideal room.”

HD+TV (01/09) rates the new Detaille series "very good"

In the latest edition of HD+TV, the editors take a closer look at the bending wave
loudspeakers of the new Detaille Series.
- “The stage emerges incredibly spacious, with all the instruments and soloists.
Localization, dynamics and coherence time are excellent. Due to the vigorous
subwoofer, the lower octave segment plays smoothly.”
- ”The excellence of the bass range powerfully unites with the clarity of the bend-
ing wave speakers. The symbiosis is entirely successful and fascinates the listen-
ers. (...)” - “Once the stage is set, the ambitious listener is rewarded with a loudspeaker
which is unique regarding fine dynamics, dispersion and coherence."

Report: BFS Audio Report #188

"I walked up the aisle and was astonished, The Detaille loudspeaker from Göbel
High End was an eye catcher. (...) Astonished not only by the radical styling, the
Detaille's technology had me wondering where I had been the past few years.

It is a flat panel consisting of 9 layers of wooden membrane with precise laser-
cut incisions. The panel is housed in a metal frame. The grill attaches magnetically.
Sensitivity is 85dB. That small flat panel has a frequency response of
150Hz to almost 30 kHz. (Martin-Logans only go down to 400 Hz these days.)
Dispersion is 180 degrees front side, and 180 degrees rear side from 150 Hz to
5kHz. How they do it? I got no idea. They also have wall hanging models available.
The subwoofers have impressive specs. These are gonna sell like hot cakes
in Scandinavia."

HIGH END 2008: Göbel presents new products

At this year's HIGH END 2008, Göbel presents the new wall loudspeaker series
„Modul“ - a flat panel loudspeaker system that has been awarded by the Bavarian
ministry of economics with the research prize for future-oriented technology.

The Detaille series, which has been awarded with a prize for technology at the
IHM 2006, comes in a new outfit: Apart from the brushed aluminum frame and
the brilliant white or black finish, the Detaille series has been face-lifted with a
new magnetic cover made from exclusive acoustic cloth. In addition to this, the
driving units of the bending wave loudspeakers Detaille S and Detaille C have
been optimized which led to an even better performance in terms of resolution
and speed.
The Lacorde cable family has been extended with a top quality XLR-cable and
comes with a new black braided sleeving. The connectors of the new XLR cable is
furnished with the usual high-grade Neutrik® plugs.

Review of our Detaille series from “The Wave” (Thailand)

"(...) Even most gentle sounds of classical instruments are reproduced and
become entirely audible (Masters of Classical Music Vol. 2: Beethoven). The violin
notes, from quiet to loud, are incredibly vivid.”

But I also tested the loudspeakers with jazz from Miles Davis and modern music
from Dave Grusin. The mid-frequencies sound especially realistic and very
smooth, so that the instruments are clearly separated.

Above all the depth of the emerging soundstage is much better than with con-
ventional loudspeakers. Yes, it is the loudspeaker system we waited for so long!
(...) And it's the first loudspeaker system, I can hear every day from morning to
night, without recognizing any kind of sound discolouration. Unlike conical loud-
speakers, the natural mid frequencies is the highlight of this bending wave loud-
speaker.

Göbel develops new edition of legendary Grundig Audiorama

In order to celebrate the 100th birthday of Max Grundig, the German company
Grundig revives the legendary spherical 360° loudspeakers "Audiorama" from the
seventies. Besides the slightly revised appearance of this design classic, Grundig
sets the main focus on a high grade sound performance. Therefore Oliver von
Kospoth, Director Sound & Digital Media at Grundig addressed Göbel Audio: "We
want the new Audiorama to be just as cool and innovative as its prototype from
the 70's, while making a quantum leap forward in terms of quality. After all, the
coming year is to host a lavish birthday party for Max Grundig, and only the finest
birthday gift is good enough."

After his visit of the Göbel premises close to Munich, where Oliver von Kospoth
enjoyed a presentation of the Göbel Detaille Series at the in-house listening
studio and gained insight into the development and production capacities of
Göbel, he was convinced. He was especially impressed that Göbel develops and
manufactures all high-end products exclusively in Germany. This supported his
decision to commission Göbel with the development of the new Audiorama series.

Göbel receives national research prize for future-oriented technology

Within the German support program for future-oriented start-ups (BayTOU),
the Bavarian ministry for economics and technology finances a new Göbel loud-
speaker project. After an extensive visit of the Göbel development centre, the
renown professor for electroacoustics at the university of Regensburg, Prof. Dr.
Ing. Manfred Zollner, certifies in his sonic expertise that main developer
Oliver Göbel has:
"good applied knowledge in the field of loudspeakers / acoustics , which consti-
tute a solid base for the necessary technical research. At no time at all did the
impression arise that Mr. Göbel is only going to resell external production goods;
in fact it was very obvious that he wants to launch a product of his own. (...)
Within the company inspection (...), the applying businessman showed extensive
acknowledgment introducing his idea and (...) presented well qualified premises
for it. The advanced prototypes of the loudspeaker were tested with different
kinds of music, whereas both visitors pointed out a very good sound reproduction.
"The fully developed product will be presented to the general public at the HIGH
END show in 2008 - Europe's most important show for audiophile sound
reproduction.

Report: IHM 2006 (Messe München GmbH)

- Think tank craft industry: bending wave loudspeaker: canorous marvel from Alling
- innovative loudspeaker system from Göbel provides perfect sound experience and
  three-dimensionality
- demand from artists creates major turnover (...)

With it's appearance at the innovation park of the 57th international craft show in
Munich, the loudspeaker system caused a sensation. Meanwhile, the specialist work-
shop is working to full capacity. The assembling of one system takes about ten
hours and the demand is huge: Göbel's loudspeakers are treated as an insider tip
amongst artists who guest in Munich and follow the recommendation of their
fellow colleagues to pay Oliver Göbel's specialist shop a visit. There, the loudspea-
kers are being produced in small series of 20 units. Apart from artists, the customers
are mainly people with high expectations regarding crystal clear sound reproduction
with a remarkably high proportion being women. It is probably the design of the
loudspeakers which looks more like a modern plastic than a box that attracts
women."

Review of our Detaille series from “What Hifi” (Indonesia)

„It is only 109.3 cm tall and its shape is very unusual for a loudspeaker. But you
will be enchanted by its sound. (...)

One thing is for sure though, this piece of equipment will transform your living
room into a world of sound you have never experienced before. (...) The sound of
Jheena’s voice is weightless and untainted by any background noise, and the
accompanying instruments are separated from one another and clearly audible.
Notice the ‘light’ voice and the pure, woody reverb of the guitar. (...)

Combine the loudspeaker with the Detaille C loudspeaker and the Detaille Sub
subwoofer to enjoy the latest films or music. Wow.... I promise they make your walls
shake! (...) The music detaches itself from the speakers completely and appears
weightless. This allows you to locate individual voices and instruments on the
soundstage."

Review of our Detaille series from “Image Hifi” (Germany)

"(...) In terms of color as well as due to it’s discreetly curved body, the active
subwoofer goes perfectly with the Detaille S anyway. (...) It is really doing a very
good job, which means nothing less than a big recommendation. (...) the perfect
in-phase and isochronic dispersion, as well as the low resonance level of the
system exemplify perfect high end harmony. Absolutely astonishing is the crystal
clear and completely detached sound characteristic of the Detaille S, which shows
without any hardness, loosely and very clearly, what electronics and cables
(recommendation: Göbel’s own cables) are capable of.

(...) Another outstanding feature is the fantastic phase locked sound dispersion
of 180 degree, what supports the dipole characteristic of the Detaille S: The living
room is being acoustically and atmospherically flooded; the smallest details
become three-dimensional - and stay on the particular position, even if you leave
the (already very generous) “sweet spot”. An experience for a true gourmet.“

Review of our Detaille series from “Hifi Test Design Edition” (Germany)

“Most fresh faced speaker producers debut with conventional loudspeakers and
concentrate on engineering with a particular approach to detail. Not Göbel - the
newcomer presents a bending wave speaker as their first product - Respect! (...)

The use of the advantages of bending wave technology in the case of the Detaille
S has been just as successful as the overcoming of its weaknesses. Thanks to an
isochronic and in phase dispersion characteristic of the bending wave, the “Detaille
S” indulges you with an accurate impulse performance, very good fine dynamics
and excellent resolution. For relaxed enjoyment of sound, a long-winded position-
ing process is not needed, as the 180 degree sound dispersion in the listener’s
direction is very broad, so that exact location and tangible spacial depiction are
possible in many different set-ups - therefore the Detaille S does not restrict its
auditorium to one exact spot. (...) Well done for this successful debut!
